Prime Time Afterschool Program

Dear Primetime Families,                                                                                                                                            9/27/2021

The school year has been going really well and we have been enjoying spending after school time with your children! As we move through this academic year we want to remind you all of a few things:

  • We spend time outside, so please pack weather appropriate clothing for your children
  • Please remind your children to pack extra face masks in case they get dirty
  • If your child is feeling unwell in any way whatsoever, please keep them home and let us know immediately

Thank you!
